Why Should You Order Swatches?

So you've chosen the perfect chair and picked out a fabric that is ideal for you're needs, so why in the world would you want to order swatches? Actually there are actually quite a few advantages to ordering swatches before placing your chair order.

Make sure what you're seeing is what you're going to get.

Have you ever gone to an electronics superstore and looked at the wall of TVs? If you have, you probably noticed that even though they were all on the same channel, the pictures varied from set to set. On one TV skin tones were a little red and on another they were pale and washed out.

This same type of thing may happen when viewing fabrics on a website. Take a look at the two fabrics below.


One is dark green and the other is black. Can you tell a difference? Since we have no control over your monitor, we can't guarantee what you're seeing is what you're going to get. The best way to ensure a fabric is the color you want is by ordering swatches.

You may be missing the texture.

Fabrics are not two dimensional. Many fabrics have a texture that a picture may not be able to bring out. In some cases the texture of a fabric may be just as important as the color itself. Take another look at the two fabrics above. Believe it or not they are the same fabric in two different colors. You can make out the texture on the green one, but it is pretty hard to see the texture on the black fabric. Of course, the only way to tell this would be by holding it in your hand.

You'll still get your chairs in about the same amount of time.

You may be thinking that by ordering swatches you're increasing the time it will take to get your chairs. All swatch orders are shipped within 1 to 2 business days of your order. You should receive your fabric samples within 2 to 7 days from the day they ship.

Of course you may be in a rush or have a deadline to meet. No problem just call 828.396.1049 with the list of swatches that you want and request to have them sent overnight. This will cost a little more, but you'll get them within a day or two. And if you are in a rush to get your chairs, just let us know when you place your order and we'll do everything possible to meet your deadline.

Swatches are very inexpensive.

Ordering fabric swatches really doesn't cost that much. We only charge 50¢ per sample. This is much less than it actually costs us to make and ship them. Better yet, orders less than $2.50 will not even be charged to your credit card.

Other advantages of ordering swatches.

When you order fabric samples there are more benefits than just peace-of-mind. Here are a few ways that having swatches may come in handy:

  • Use the samples to help pick curtains, throw pillows or other furnishings.
  • Get the opinions of family members or friends before placing your order.
  • Take your swatches to the local paint store when trying to decide on paint for your room.
  • Share them with family or friends that may be considering an order.
